Coming back from vacation.

No seriously, I've been on vacation since April. It's almost July and I still haven't found that first stepping stone to a marketing job a.k.a. REAL JOB.

I've seriously given up on a marketing hotel job. Forget working with the big boys at the Wynn, MGM Mirage, Sands, and Caesar's. I guess I have to sleep with HR first to get a job interview.

Maybe being bartender is not a bad idea. I was told by majority of my bartender friends NOT to go to bartender school. It's better to start off as a bar-back. All I have to do is keep checking on Cosmopolitan careers page see if there's a bar-back opening.

But do I really want a dead, but fun and lots of alcohol job?

My blog died in April and May.

Back to blogging. I got inspired now that I only work full time and go to the gym.

So have you heard of..

Greenwich Village? It's not pronounced Green-witch but more like Gren-nischt.

It's gorgeous with the old buildings and the fire escape on the front. I would love to live here.

United Nations

Did you know that the United Nations is not technically located in New York City? It's technically an international territory.

If you're a student, you get to pay $11 for the U.N. tour.

General Assembly Hall

Security Council Chambers

Entrance to the U.N.

For 45 minutes, you get to learn anything and everything about the U.N., their purpose, mission, etc. The most annoying part of the tour: high school children. Enough said.

Joe's Shanghai - NYC

Most delicious soup I've ever eaten. Located on 9 Pell St in Chinatown, Joe's Shanghai is pretty much a hole in a wall type of restaurant. Literally. I had to walk into some dirty and fishy smell alley.

This restaurant is open everyday from 11 a.m. to 11p.m. There was a line already when I got there around 10:40 a.m. Good thing my friend and I were second in line. Here's what to get:

Seafood Soup

Won-ton Soup

Steamed Pork

Pork dumplings

Total cost of the meal: around $20ish.

Yama Sushi. Delicious

My ex-roommate, his girlfriend and I went to Yama Sushi for their all-you-can-eat sushi. And, oh boy, it was delicious. Here are some things that I've ordered:

Started off with appetizer:
Seafood Salad. Spiciness level: mild.

Another appetizer: Soft shell crab w/ squeezed lemon

Pre-main course meal: baked green mussels.

Main course:
Firecracker: Jalapeno shell with spicy tuna and spicy mayo. Spicy!

Man whore: California roll topped with Salmon and a small slice of lemon. Spicy.

Dessert: mochi mango ice cream and a scoop of plum ice cream. Delicious in my mouth.

So worth the $25 I've spent for dinner. I should have gone for lunch where it's $20. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's searching for a Japanese owned sushi bar (most sushi places here in Vegas are Korean owned).

Oh no!!!

What do you when you're drunk and you need that starch? Steak and eggs baby!

The Orleans' Courtyard Cafe has been my favorite spot for late night dinner, after studying snack and post clubbing sober up meal. Why? Because they have a reasonably priced steak and eggs. Back in the summer of '10 it was priced at $3.49 and served from midnight to 6 a.m. In the fall, it was changed to $4.49 and served from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The other night, I lost to a bowling game. Loser had to buy dinner. Of course, I didn't mind because it was going to cost me as much as half a plate at LAVO. Then the check came and it had a total as much as a plate at LAVO. They increased their price from $4.49 to $6.99. Really?! We ask one of the servers if the price changed and we had a hard time understanding. We picked up: "discontinued, no more" etc etc etc blah blah blah.

Cheap food no more.
